Bendigo Art Gallery and Twentieth Century Fox are bringing together Marilyn Monroe’s memorabilia for never-seen-before exhibition in Australia.

It’s a ground-breaking collaboration, curated by Bendigo Art Gallery, showcasing costumes from 12 of the films Marilyn completed with the studio. The exhibition will also showcase clothing worn and owned by the Hollywood starlet and so much more.

Pieces have come from private collectors around the world and are debuting for the first time in Australia.

But the exhibition wouldn't be complete without 'Forever Marilyn', the iconic 8 metre sculpture by Seward Johnson. It has been secured for the exhibition and will make its international debut in Bendigo.

The exhibition is open every day from Saturday March 5 to Sunday July 10 2016

Tickets are single entry and timed, starting at 10am and then 30 minute intervals to 3:30pm.
